Banana Pudding Bundt Cake is a cake worth obsessing over. Just ask Lucy!
My son who is 10 couldn’t really care less about cake. He loves brownies and candy and the occasional doughnut, but he just doesn’t flip out about all sweets like I do. I don’t discriminate – he and my husband, however, have very strict restrictions on what desserts they will and will not eat.
My son won’t eat anything with frosting. No frosted cakes or cupcakes, only the occasional glaze and usually only after I convince him that it’s NOT frosting. No cheesecake or anything cream cheese-y. Nothing too messy. Nothing with nuts or coconut. And no oatmeal cookies.
My husband, on the other hand, will not eat any dessert with fruit. Whether it has fruit in it like an apple pie or is fruit flavored like strawberry cake, he will have nothing to do with it. I remember once early in our marriage, I prepared the most beautiful apple pie with a lattice top crust. I was so proud of that pie…until it sat there for days, with only a few slices cut out of it for me.
The only wonderful thing to come out of that experience was the inevitable guilt my husband feels when I bring it up at convenient times. Like when I need him to run an errand for me. The bad kind, like oil changes or buying stamps. I don’t know, I just feel like I’m allergic to the post office.
You could imagine how thrilled I was to discover that my Lucy will eat literally any dessert. Nuts in it? No problem? Piles of frosting? She’ll lick it right off! Dark chocolate? Um…hello, it’s still chocolate. Homegirl knows sugar when she sees it, and she has no fear.
Needless to say, this cake was not for my husband or my son. It was for Lucy and I, who shared generous slices at a tea party, clinking our tiny cups together in “cheers” and taking giant, happy bites. This cake is an easy one to throw together and looks and tastes wonderful – cool, creamy filling and topping with a moist banana pudding flavored cake with vanilla wafers baked inside.
I think you’ll love it!
